Seriously, though, Sony isn't a government. It isn't owned by the government as would be the case under communism, nor is it controlled by the government as it would be under fascism. If there really is a govenment somewhere giving tax incentives for the destruction of Vipers or any cameras, that would be interesting news.

Wouldn't they be citing some sort of write-off for devaluation of assets?

At least here in the States, you have to own something for a while, like 3 - 5 years or more, before you can depreciate it for federal taxes. If they didn't do that, businesses could take truly worthless items as trade-ins, and claim too much for them.

I've never heard of that -- what government gives you a tax deduction for destroying cameras?

Hi,

When stock clearly has no value this must be reflected in the accounts. Stock is usually held at the lower of cost or net re-saleable value.

Hi I have shot for 20 days with viper now,I love easy to use approach of the system.What I did not like is its electronic viewfinder and lack of balance when one is doing handheld work.Another problem that we are facing is time code breaks.The workflow that we are following is record on venum flash then transfer the data on HD tape at HQ mode.I have shot alot in low light,hope my footage is not going to be grainy....Thanks Ravi sudarshan

Ravi, please go to menu under the diagnostic menu and tell me the camera status. Is it 11?

Do you see any noise when in wide mode?

Can you post the full size tiff?

It will be great to see a color corrected image...
